Speaking of portraits ... Sansom won't get one



The House will unveil a portrait of Speaker Larry Cretul next week but don't expect a likeness of his disgraced predecessor, Ray Sansom.

Sansom served at the helm of the House for 2 1/2 months before he stepped down amid questions that led to his indictment and later his resignation. The traditional oil portrait was never commissioned.

"There will only be one portrait hung," Cretul said.
